Update on COVID-19 and the Schools & Academies Show

The Schools & Academies Show London 2020 which was due to take place on 29th & 30th April at ExCeL, London is now unfortunately postponed until 29th & 30th September at ExCeL, London. This is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

We appreciate that with the school closures, adapting to a new way of running your school or organisation and subsequent re-opening of schools the sector will have had an extremely busy time since March. 

Therefore, the new date is positioned at a time when we hope to be back to some sense of normality and will provide the sector with a much needed opportunity to galvanise and reflect on how your organisation, the sector and the country can look towards the future and a successful academic year.

Safety Measures Update:

The Schools & Academies Show London 2020 will be taking place at ExCeL, London. The venue have released safety guidelines which provide advice on ensuring a safe and secure method of running business events at the venue. You can access these guidelines by following this link – ExCeL Guidelines.

Additionally, as organisers of the show, we will be ensuring the following changes take place to provide attendees with confidence in the safety of attending:

  • Wider Aisles
  • Minimum Stand Space of 9m
  • Larger Theatres
  • Hand Sanitizer Stations
  • No Onsite Registration (everyone has to be pre-registered)
  • Contactless Entry (we will post badges to every pre-registered attendee)

The Schools & Academies Show has been a staple in the education calendar for the past decade and is an important event for school leaders and suppliers to meet, network and overcome the challenges they face in the successful running of their school. At this time, more than any before, we believe that ensuring the event runs successfully is essential and as such, we expect the new date will provide the opportunity for visitors and exhibitors to still benefit from the outcomes of the event.
